The Powerful Observer
The observer, when he seems to himself to be observing a stone, is really, if physics is to be believed, observing the effects of the stone upon himself.
The physical world, including our bodies, is a response of the observer. We create our bodies as we create the experience of our world.
Every man takes the limits of his own field of vision for the limits of the world.
It is wrong to think that the task of physics is to find out how Nature is. Physics concerns what we say about Nature.
I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead; I lift my eyes and all is born again.
